My wife had health issues and so had to cancel her part of the trip, though I continued. I filed a claim for $1400 with all required information at the end of May. Upon returning home, after nearly 2 months of inaction and only cryptic notes given in the online claim status report, I called customer service at TravelClaimsOnline.

The representative could not explain the delay, especially during 3 weeks of June when no status entries were made. She also pointed out that for some unknown reason, the claim number was changed without informing me, so I could not know any of the latest status updates anyway.

It is now the end of July and the claim status report of the new number on the day after I called said, "final payment printed". The check finally arrived two months after filing the claim and much confusion.

I made a claim to another travel insurance company for a separate trip that I had to cancel due to my wife's health issue. It was also obtained through InsureMyTrip. The claim was processed in 2 weeks. I will use this company again!

Hard to review when I have not yet had to file a claim but I chose the plan for the medical coverage.

Thank goodness I did not need to file a claim. So, I am not sure how well the coverage would actually have worked.

The security I had knowing that there was access to coverage was significant in adding to the very positive experience I had in Europe. What a great experience it was. Thank you for providing the time and information that was so beneficial to me in this process.

It was great to be able to choose just what is needed rather than a policy that covers area already covered by our existing insurance.

Traveling with peace of mind is priceless. I am blessed that I did not need the benefits of my plan but even more relieved that they were there. Thank you.

I am still going thru the process at the moment, but so far things have been smooth and the communication is hands down number one. I appreciate the time and the care that the agents have taken to support my claim and my overall desire for resolution.

Thank You

I did not have to make any claims so it is difficult to determine how this insurance would have come through for me, but the plan suited my needs.
